Consulting can be fun some times

Wouldn’t it be fun, if regular people had relationships like vendors do with their clients?


Israel documents terrorist acts on YouTube for our benefit

IDF (Israel Defense Force) has a YouTube channel.

The YouTube channel has recently been used to document, and I quote IDF:

IDF’s operational success in operation Cast Lead against Hamas extremists in the Gaza Strip

Interesting choice of words, but what else would you expect from a propagandist. Human beings would probably describe the videos posted on that channel in the past few days as something else.


Russians: Uncle Joe is a-ok

A poll conducted by a Russian TV station about who’s the greatest Russian of all time concluded with Joseph Stalin in third place. That certainly explains a thing or two about what’s going on in that country.

Next week: Adolf Hitler to be crowned the Greatest German of all time in a poll by Der Spiegel.


Endangering life of a toddler is a “training opportunity” to Bed, Bath & Beyond

I’m pretty skeptical when it comes to corporate communication and don’t usually flinch no matter what bullshit the professional spinsters come out with.

Bed, Bath and Beyond takes the PR spinning to a whole another level in regards to a recent incident that played out in their store.

Some moron had left their 3-year-old baby locked inside a car in scorching weather. A customer asked if she could call 911 from Bed, Bath and Beyond. For some unexplained reason the store employees refused. A 911 call was made by some other means.

When contacted about the incident, Bed, Bath and Beyond had this to say:

Blah blah blah blah…We are pleased that the manner was addressed in a timely manner and will use this incident as a training opportunity. blah blah blah…

Isn’t that just lovely. Way to address the issue by completely ducking responsibility.

Update: Local authorities are looking into if Bed, Bath and Beyond broke any laws by refusing to call the police. The article also has a great quote from the BB&B staff:

They said store clerks refused, saying it was against its policy to get involved with parking-lot incidents, Bowe said.

Boggles the mind.

28813 days and 20 hours.

That’s how long the nice laptop running Windows Vista [1] says copying 74 files from an USB drive to the hard drive will take. I’m tempted to wait the time and see, if the estimate is accurate.


1. No, it wasn’t my choice to run Windows Vista. I’d rather get waterboarded.
